Ain't chatted, no.. used the GTS some, though. Got me an abra in return for an onix. The vast majority of trades on there are completley ridiculous though. Like.. they offer a level 20 Wooper in return for a level 100 Palkia ridiculous.

I've never even ran into a shiny in any pokemon game ever.

So, has anyone had a live chat over wifi yet?

the only shiny Poke I ever saw was a purple Krabby in Gold... unfortunately I didnt have any pokeprisons to catch it in and the whole encounter was wasted. What i really want is a shiny Trapinch.
Sam is basically right, he's just cranky.

If anyone is interested (especially you Pearl players) I have 2 extra diamond exclusive cranidos' revived from skull fossils. They all come out as lvl. 20 so don't complain about me rasing it for you. In return, I would like the Pearl equivalent fossil pokemon. I forgot which one it is. I prefer we trade in the wi-fi club so no one nabs it from the GTS. Plus I'm not in the condition to go all the way back to Jubilife City (I don't have Fly yet...)

My friend encountered and captured a shiny Bidoof really early on. I haven't seen one yet, though.

Man, this game is going to be LONG. Gloriously long. I am 12 hours in and I'm only on my way to the third city.

Man, I want to trade/battle with you guys. My games not here yet though

I hope you guys are still willing to trade normally. I wouldn't say I care for video game monster, but I would like to send my pokemon to someone I some what know. Then you could look on it's tag and think of me  :)

(If they still have the system that tells you where your pokemon came from)

[edit]

The talk about sent me off looking for an old site that had the original pokemon and the shiny ones next to it (like a black charazard)

Anyway, I found the wiki

And it reminded me that I have a red Gyarados. I'm not sure which version, but I'm sure I have one.

I think I got it through part of the story though. Anyone remember which version? I might be able to transfer it to diamond.

be able to use any of the Pal Park features until after you acquire the
National Dex after completing the game.

Ah man! That sucks.  :'(

Reading some more guides from GameFAQs, I read this:


possible spoilers











Quote
As you enter the Pal Park, if you have already gotten the National Dex,
Professor Oak will be inside and will tell you that you can now transfer
Pokemon from Kanto or Hoenn into the Pal Park. He'll also give you the
Pokeradar Counter for your Poketch, which shows you a ranking of the top 3
Pokemon that you've seen the most of by using the Pokeradar. He also says
something about Eterna City, and then leaves.

Now, by transferring Pokemon from your GBA games, you are able to catch the
transferred Pokemon inside of the Pal Park. You can transfer up to 6 Pokemon
per GBA game every 24 hours into the Pal Park (and, for those of you who like
to time jump and set the Nintendo DS clock ahead, doing that will make you
wait another 24 hours).

To do this, insert a a copy of Pokemon Ruby, Sapphire, Emerald, FireRed, or
LeafGreen into the GBA slot of your Nintendo DS. On the menu screen (Continue,
New Game, Settings...), there should be a new option (it's the third option)
for you to select. Select this option, and you will be able to choose 6
Pokemon from your GBA game by using the stylus to select them. The selected
Pokemon cannot have any HM moves learned, otherwise you will not be able to
transfer them, so be sure to make use of the version's Move Deleter before
attempting this.

After you have selected your 6 Pokemon, you will be asked if you want to
permanently transfer the Pokemon from the GBA game to your Diamond or Pearl
version. THE POKEMON WILL BE GONE FOREVER IN YOUR GBA GAME IF YOU DO THIS!
Upon answering yes via stylus, you will be asked one more time for
confirmation, and if you say yes again, the Pokemon will be transferred into
the Pal Park.

Now, load up your save, and talk to the technician at the gate of the Pal Park
and he'll ask if you want to try and catch the Pokemon that you transferred
over. Agree, and you'll be given 6 Park Balls to catch the Pokemon inside of
the Pal Park. If you are transferring any Water-type Pokemon, it is
recommended that you keep a Pokemon with Surf in your party.

The Pal Park is a pretty simple place; there are patches of grass scattered
about. The 6 Pokemon that you transferred will be hiding inside of the tall
grass and on the water, and your job is to track all of them down. You might
also only have a limited amount of time to do this (although I have yet to run
out of time, I have heard that there is a time limit). Certain Pokemon will
favor certain parts of the Pal Park and will be more likely to be found in
those areas. For instance, Rock-type Pokemon will be more commonly encountered
in the northeastern part of the Pal Park, in the rocky area, and Bug-type
Pokemon will be easier to find in the foresty northwestern area.

After catching all 6 transferred Pokemon, you will be escorted out of the Pal
Park and will be judged based on several factors, one of which being how
quickly you caught the Pokemon. Depending on how well you did, you will
receive an item (I always got berries). Answer Yes to the question, and your
newly-transferred Pokemon will be sent to your PC.

All Pokemon that you transfer retain all of their stats, moves, held items, OT
and ID No., gender, nickname, etc. Pretty much, exactly like they were in the
GBA game. (Actually, I'm not sure on this, but there is a chance that certain
Pokemon's abilities may change when transferred, due to the addition of new
abilities for certain Pokemon.)


Wait.... what does this mean? Is it just a searching game? Or do you have to battle your old pokemon? does this mean if you kill it, it's gone forever!?  :o

From the sounds of it, I think it's just a searching game.
You find the pokemon, throw the ball, and your done.

.... or at lest I hope so  :-\  :'(

PS

Some one post so I can stop editing this one, thanks  :P

A word on shinys.. shinys were never in red/blue/yellow. They didn't have that system in place then.

They first appeared in Gold/Silver, most notably in the form of the red gyarados. Since those games, shinys I have caught:
- Gyarados (oblitagory)
- Suicune (Yes. My suicune on silver was actually SHINY. Unbelievable luck or what?)
- Spinda (Perhaps not so impressive..)

I also recall seeing a shiny Teddiursa once but I accidentally KO'd it.

This was the site I was talking about. It's outdated since the new games are out, but at lest you could look at the pokemon that you will never see.

You do not battle Pal Park pokemon. Upon entry of battle you automatically through a 100% capture ball.
No way dude, you're trolling me.

Trurer words have never been spoken.

I also wish he would redesign the damn site.  Awful navigation, crappy banners, eye-bleeding colour scheme, crammed with pointless/outdated information, etc.  He doesn't actually update old pages, he just puts new information on top of the old, making things even more confusing.  And deactivating right click is very annoying, is he so paranoid he thinks everyone is going to steal "his" information/images?  It wouldn't be hard to get around that if you actually wanted to, it just stops us from being able to copy down attack/breeding information to print out.

It's a little sad that it's still the best Pokemon site out there.  I'd pay someone to make a better one.  Just, please, don't go with dark green and dark brown on black.
